Wilder retains title with brutal first-round knockoutSports | May 20, 2019
Wilder, 33, who has one of the most destructive right hands in heavyweight history, floored the challenger with a one-punch knockout with 43 seconds left in the opening round at the Barclays Center arena in New York.
Wilder swarmed Breazeale from the opening bell, hurting him with a straight right hand then finishing him off later in the round with the devastating right to the chin that was set up by a left jab. "When I hit him with the right hand the first time his body language changed," said Wilder. "I knew he was slowing down and opening up."
